  2. Lackluster Job Search Efforts

    Pros

    Some personnel very engaging and personable, others not so much. Affiliation with CPA office presumably provides top tier job possibilities. It is always good to have another set of eyes looking for good opportunities.

    Cons

    Markedly poor communication. One job in particular was presented to me on several occasions as if it was a brand new opportunity, yet there was no movement toward forwarding my resume to the employer after the first couple of mentions, though they may have actually done so now finally. While I am fairly confident that my resume did get provided to one employer, there seemed to be no real interest in pursuing my viability as a candidate; even when the employer twice failed to contact them as agreed, CFS had not bothered to reach out to them (or me) when I finally followed up 1 & 2 weeks later respectively. Although encouraged in my initial interview to have them apply only to the highest paying positions for which I am qualified, as "with my qualifications the only challenge I would have would be to accept the best offer", the reality has obviously been vastly different. It seems clear to me that a lot of smoke has been blown up my suit from the outset, but who knows, they could still end up doing me some good, even if quite by accident.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Tell the truth & don't misrepresent prospects or reality. Don't say you are going to do something and then not do it, whether it is a followup, status report, or resume submission.

    I worked at Creative Financial Staffing as a contractor (more than a year)

    Pros

    Will listen to you and understand your desired career goals. Will look for jobs which match your desires. I asked for something long term, with stability and my recruiter is still working to find something which meets my needs.

    Cons

    Not enough Human Resources jobs, but that's okay because there are Staff Accountant positions which utilize HR roles

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Better perks to retain great employees

    Pros

    The Baltimore office provides solid accounting assignments. Contractor service is excellent. They often obtain good accounting assignments. CFS is well connected to the public accounting side of MacGladrey.

    Former Employee - Anonymous Employee

    I worked at Creative Financial Staffing full-time

    Pros

    Decent people to work with.

    Cons

    -Lower than average salaries for this type of role
    -Constant push for gathering company information from every source; leading candidates (who would not be considered staff-able) to believe we will help them find work
    -Posting ads for non-existent jobs in order to bring in and interview candidates to have 'oh hold' should something eventually arise.
    - Cold calling, all the time
    -Push to meet unattainable goals (connects, meetings, interviews and so on)
    -Micro-management at its finest

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Offer market competitive salaries so people have incentive to stay. Consider that different markets have different challenges and that a 'one size fits all' attitude doesn't apply to every market. What works in one area for one person does not work for another person across the country.
